David Cameron Profile

Eton educated David Cameron has announced that his daughter Nancy will be attending a state school when she turns 11 next year

The announcement means that David Cameron will become the first Tory Prime Minister to send his child to a state secondary school.

He stated that he has already had a look at ‘three or four schools in London’ but ultimately it would be his daughter who will have the biggest say.

When asked why Nancy would not receive the same privileges that the Prime Minister enjoyed when he attended Eton, David Cameron said: "If you pay your taxes you shouldn't have to pay all over again.

"There is no reason why our state schools can't be among the best in the world, and some of them are. What is exciting is there is this change not only in practice but also in culture which is all about excellence and wanting to be the best and wanting to get the best out of every child, and you are now seeing that in more and more schools."
